The Reading Obsession

Reviews of Fiction Books: Everything from Young Adult Romance to Crime Thrillers

Existence (Existence Trilogy, #1) - Abbi Glines Look at that face. Isn't it just so sexy? That was what made me pick up the book. I know, I know. You're going to tell me that I shouldn't judge a book by its cover. My answer to that? Hypocrite. Don't you tell me that you never looked a cover and thought, "Ooh! Pretty!" That's what was going through my head when I saw it. Picking the book up, I, naturally, went for the summary. Girl and Death. Seems awesome, doesn't it? Sadly, it wasn't. My first issue with this book was the names: Dank, Pagan, and Leif. Where have you ever heard these names in your entire life? The names should have keyed me off that it wasn't going to be great. So, I closed the book, and saw those eyes again. They just told me to keep reading, and that it was going to be better. If only it was.I didn't like how Pagan used Leif, at all. It's sad. It's like how Bella used Jacob. Boys have feelings, you know! I also hated how, even though Leif was great, she just kept wanting Dank.It was usually easy to guess what would happen next. There were two shockers, at most.I liked the idea of the story, but it could have been so much better.Pagan has her logical moments, and she actually thinks about her grades. She's nice. Except for toying with Leif, she listens to her conscience.I really liked Gee. She added humor to the plot.The first and part of the book was good.Borrow this book. Then read it when you're craving a fast romance.Find this review and more at
